UK Study Tour provides useful insight

Posted 26 July 2017

The VHA’s 2017 study tour - led by CEO Tom Symondson – has provided an excellent overview of the English and Scottish public health and social care system, he said today.

“The UK public health system has similarities to our system but is also going through many reforms which made it an ideal location to visit,” he said from the UK.

“There is a great deal we can learn in Victoria - both what to do and what not to do. Their long experience of commissioning (rather than simply contracting) is particularly interesting.”

The tour, which was open to CEOs, executives, board members and other stakeholders, also provided an opportunity to deepen understanding the role of the NHS and funding models for hospitals and community health.
